A lovely peaceful walk alongside the river, ending at the river mouth, where it meets the sea. Great for kayaking too!

Nice path that’s had some work recently completed to it to make it pram accessible. Great way to discover the less ‘well-known’ areas of the town, particularly on a windy day...Kayak launch in the south side of the river is also very handy!

There you are in a pleasant but fairly normal coastal WA town and then suddenly you come across the Irwin River and this mini-reserve. If you like nature and especially bird-watching, this is a must!

We enjoyed walking part of the Heritage River Trail and were lucky enough to see some blue wrens and also stilts and other birds. Dongara is a beautiful town for a relaxed holiday
